We stayed with our family in Art Deco House, the house had 2 big rooms, a lounge & a porch. Each house is located separately away from each other, which was really good for privacy. Bikes to go around the resort was really good idea, but most of them tyres were flat. The house took us back many years as... More

The lack of internet and TV is such a wonderful perk of this resort. It's a real escape to unwind. Room was nice although it felt like it hadn't been stayed in for a while. Garden furniture was dirty and sofa inside stained. Overall felt like it needed a refresh clean to prepare it for guests. Towels were old and... More

A nice serene absolutely eco friendly affair, or rather too eco friendly fro, Indian standards. Especially with regards to food, which we found too blend and we tried during lunches and dinners. While the same restaurant can serve a breakfast, which has all Indian ingredients. Very friendly staff and good service at the resort. Customer service manager had been exceptional.... More

We stayed in this hotel this Diwali and the experience was good. Most of the furniture in the room is made from recycled material or bamboo. They use rain water harvesting and have their own organic farm and cows. They provide two cycles per room for internal transportation, since the resort is spread out in large area. However nature cooled... More
